They'll Know We Are Christians
"They'll Know We Are Christians" (also known as "They'll Know We Are Christians By Our Love" or "We Are One in the Spirit") is a Christian hymn written in the 1960s by then-Catholic priest, the late Fr. Peter Scholtes. It is inspired by John 13:35. The title of the hymn They'll Know We Are Christians By Our Love originates in a phrase that non-believers used to describe Christians believers of early Church: "Behold, how they love one another."
The song has been covered by a variety of Christian recording artists, including Jars of Clay, Rebecca St. James, Lydia Walker, and For King & Country, which covered the song for the show "A.D, the Bible Continues." The song was also featured in the opening of the Christian movie, “A Distant Thunder.”
